REALIZING THE DREAM: An Excerpt from THE MAGICAL PATH by New World Library Publisher Marc Allen

Why don’t more of us dare to dream, and why don’t we dare to do whatever we can to fulfill our deepest desires?

In his book The Magical Path: Creating the Life of Your Dreams and a World That Works for All, which is now also available as an audiobook, New World Library publisher and bestselling author Marc Allen explains that it is because most of us are filled with fears that ultimately overwhelm our dreams before they have a chance to become a reality.

“Most of us fear failure so much that it keeps us from doing the things that we really want to do, the things that make us happy, excited, filled with life,” writes Marc. “Don’t let fear overwhelm your dreams. Go for it. You’ll never regret it. You may fail along the way — in fact you probably will. Yet life goes on. . . . This moment is all we have, and we can, in this moment, create some seriously effective magic, if we wish — if we dare to dream!”

The Magical Path
is a short path, one that reaches its destination quickly. We hope you’ll enjoy this short excerpt from the book, which is filled with effective, easy-to-apply practices — including affirmations, visualizations, and guided meditations — that can change your life in miraculous ways. Because these tools are so simple and powerful, Marc calls them “magic.” But far from esoteric, they are tools anyone can use to achieve their dreams and goals.

Millions of people already have the dream of creating a better world; millions of people are already doing great things. But there’s so much more to do — and every one of us can do something. If you don’t think you have the time, if you don’t think you have the money, you can still pick up the trash around you as you walk somewhere. You can still recycle; you can still treat people nicely; you can still work in partnership with others.

Everyone can do something
to make the world a better place —
a world that works for all.

The Great Work ahead of us
is replacing the well-entrenched model of domination,
based on fear and a need to control,
with a new way of living,
a new model of partnership,
based on love and respect for all people
and all creation.

So be it. So it is!

Everyone can do something — so do something, now, today, or at least this week. We’ve got our work cut out for us. We need to house, feed, and educate everyone on the planet. We need to give everyone security and basic human rights, which means we need to bring an end to war, because war is a major violation of human rights. It’s a big challenge, but it’s doable. We have had the technology for years; the only thing we lacked was the vision. Now we have the vision: We can create a world that works for all.

What are you doing to help make the world a better place?

Every one of us can help. It doesn’t matter who we are, whether we’re rich or poor, optimist or pessimist. It doesn’t matter what causes we identify with, what labels we use to describe ourselves. It doesn’t matter whether we’re conservative or liberal, religious or atheist, spiritual or pragmatic. We’re all members of the same family, and we can all agree that there is plenty of room for improvement in the world.

The bad news is that the world is a mess. People are starving, homeless, and dying in wars. Far too many people are impoverished, hopeless, and dying from diseases that can be avoided.

The good news is that we can all do something about it. Every one of us can do something to improve our own lives and someone else’s life as well. We can continue to discover more fully the brilliant power of partnership in our intimate and family relationships, our workplaces and communities, our nation, and our world. Along the way, we realize the great partnership we have with nature, and with spirit.
